car jerks with new lsd

i recently installed my tomei 2 way lsd...

However, my car seems to suddenly jerk while driving on straight-aways. This jerking is not constant, but happens every minute or so. This jerking seems to happen on higher rpms (maybe around 2500 and up), and it usually becomes fine in the lower rpms...especially cruising in 5th gear. Also, flooring the clutch to shift gears suddenly jerks the car. (The car jerks more right than left if that matters)

The installation of the lsd seemed to go pretty well, and i went through the initial break-in procedure involving doing figure-8s. I also changed the diff oil after the break-in. Also the differential pumpkin has no leaks. The alignment does not look bad either.

So does anybody have any ideas to fix this problem?

Check that, or to be on the safe side, contact a shop in your area that is very familiar with Tomei parts and see what they say. If they are a reputable shop, they will let you know whats up with out telling you to come in and pay X amount before they tell you whats wrong with it if it is the diff.
